Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Mrs. Malooly
By Agnes Lee
 
From “Sleep Poems”

MRS. MALOOLY has gone to her rest,
Who scrubbed Manhattan’s marble aisles.
She has forgotten, forgotten, forgotten
The mop and broom
And the patterned tiles.        5
 
Mrs. Malooly has gone to her rest
In the smooth-dug loam, to a rest so deep
She has forgotten, forgotten, forgotten
The unmade bed
And the whiskey sleep.        10
